Description Karsten Hopp 2004-01-29 04:14:22 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040115

Description of problem:
rpc.mountd can be reproducably killed on our server by trying to mount
a directory from it (no extra mount options given on commandline).

There are lots of 'udp v4 hw csum failure' kernel messages, which might 
indicate a hardware problem, but I'm not sure about that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just try to mount a directory from the server
2. no extra commandline parameters given to the mount command

Actual Results:  mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused

Expected Results:  NFS mount succeeds

Additional info:
The name of workstation were I try to mount the NFS directory isn't
resolvable by DNs, if that matters.
Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2004-01-29 06:14:48 EST
That's quite bad...
When I use a DNS resolvable IP on the same workstation, the mount
command works and rpc.mountd doesn't segfault.
